Footnotes

  • High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Bake 18-23 min.
  • Success Tip: Be sure to use whipping cream when making the sauce for this decadent mac 'n cheese. Milk or half-and-half are more likely to curdle when combined with acidic ingredients like tomatoes.

This is a WONDERFUL mac'n'cheese recipe and very simple to make. I found the smoked cheddar in the deli/gourmet section of the supermarket and grated it myself. I made sure to use whipping cream as suggested in the recipe. I did not make any change whatsoever to the recipe, and it came out perfect. I will be making this recipe again.

This is a great recipe. I doubled the amount of sauce because I prefer a creamier mac 'n cheese. I also used whole wheat elbows and drained the tomatoes so that the sauce wasn't overwhelmed with a tomato taste.

This is really really delicious. I have made this several times. I add 1/2 cup milk because I like it creamier. When I can't find / don't want to pay for smoked cheddar I add 1 - 2 tsp liquid smoke (which I've never been a fan of but it works really well in this dish), I have also used a Tablespoon or so of pureed chipotle peppers for the heat. Yum. Great recipe!
